    Are the response characteristics/sounds different between the 2 diff or similiar? Again TIA!

    you might find me somewhere.
    thanks! was only just getting to figuring out that riff.
    will check the input/output caps.
    set to Ge.
    reverse phase, plenty of feedback (gate on, bias-"gating" very much in use), feedback quasi-tuned to an octave+5th above-the-root.

    i think input cap was on 4, output cap on 2 or 3.
    bright switch off.

    neck pickup, slight tone roll-off.

    Between TB and Buzzy? Big difference IMO. Buzzy is more thick cutting and gated (slightly). TB is cutting and edgy. Generally. And TB is less compressed. Two different animals. Buzzy might have more bottom end too depending on builder/version. BTW-What the hell is TIA?

    i dig 'em both, but own 2 MkI's (and counting), but no buzzarounds (though the Pigdog fuzzbound tempts me); to each their own!
    my favorite MkI's are facelessfx Marquis, Ghost Effects 2065, PigDog Loony; apparently, @analogmike is working on his 1st MkI right now.

    i love the feel, sensitivity and sometimes greasy, gatey riiiip of a great MkI; super-expressive.

    Here's the FUBÄR with expression pedal madness... Not necessarily fit for human ears, but hey you asked! @wrightdude's track with the Fuzzbear is better for showing the more musical side of this circuit. Hah

    Do you know if the exp can take 0-5V CV? I think I asked and it couldnt... but I may be confabulating?

    Unfortunately I don't know. The manual just says 10kOhm-100kOhm, and I'm using a cheap m-audio one which works fine.

    Any opinions on the best IC muff (besides an '78 EHX BMP)? So far the pedals I'm aware of are:
    1. Blakemore Effects DreamsICle.
    2. Wren and Cuff Eye See Pi.
    3. Caroline Shigeharu.
    4. Daredevil '78.
    5. Made by Mike Dream Box/'78 IC Muff.
    6. EHX IC muff collab with Billy Corgan, whenever that gets released.
    And since there's a sale on - would the BAT Son of Pharaoh get me anywhere near the sound of a '78?

    That was great! I tend to apologize for many of my messes too, but so love wallowing in filthy, mangled dirt. I've almost hit "buy" a few times for the Fuzz Bear and especially the FUBÄR, but I am currently more than delighted with the extra range and interesting artifacts I'm getting from my Fat Fuzz Factory, and it's tiny; FFF sent my Fuzz Probe packing.

    And dang if I didn't add COD LIVER to 208, so here's the "final" setlist and it should be up at BandCamp later today, hopefully. One of my finer messes! *-)

    I plugged a Bit Commander into my Harmonic Transformer and the resulting sound was so brutal that it knocked my power out! Or maybe it was the snow that knocked a tree onto the power lines.... but I think it was the gated sub octaves

    Yessss, wallow in the filth young Luke.... Haha.

    I checked out COD LIVER earlier today when it came up in my soundcloud feed. Great stuff... It's always cool to hear how other peeps (ab)use their Ricochets.

    The FFF has been on my want list for a long time.

    I've never had an IC Muff (yet), but I don't think the Pharaoh cops that particular vibe at all. Pharaoh is more fat, less scooped.

    I will for sure get the EHX version when it comes out!

    That was my concern - I already have an EQD Acapulco Gold and, while it's not a fuzz, it has a full on fat sound which is pretty wide open. I'm looking for an IC muff for some contrast, and I just love that sound regardless. The closest I get to something I'd buy is the Wren and Cuff, but I'm just exploring options. I'll inevitably end up buying the EHX version when it's released too!

    Check out Mojo Hand FX 1978 and 1979.

    The 1978 is 3-knob with no tone bypass switch.

    The 1979 has a separate footswitch and level knob for the tone bypass, which I haven’t seen on any other Muffs. I own this version and it’s very nice.

    Man, that's exactly what I want. I'd always wondered why no one included a level knob for the tone bypass to account for the volume increase. Cheers!
